Black Diamond AMPerage (2012)
Redesigned for Winter 2011-12, Black Diamond's Power Series is a collection of eight skis designed with the downhill experience--inbounds, slackcountry, heli, or cat--in mind. Power Series skis are built to hang during short skin missions, but the brand's Efficient Series is better for full-day tours and overnights. The AMPerage is made to be the collection's most versatile shape, capable of hanging in powder, park, groomers, or trees. It utilizes a glass-wrapped " torsion box" wood core.
